I bought these 3WTF last weekend. I've been watching them with eagle eyes of course all week hoping they're healty.
I'm paranoid.. If one has been sitting for more than 24 hrs in the same spot.. I gotta give it a nudge.

Anyway... One of them went into the water last night, and she's stil there this morning. She's my only blue female and I'm pretty protective over her. I tried gently nudging her out of the water, but she's insistant in staying put. I've NEVER seen them in there midday.. It's cloudy so it's darkish in the living room.
Should I manually take her out the water or am I just being a worry wort?

if she's not acting funny. And just sitting in her water. I'd leave her be. It could be as simple as that's wehre she wants to hang out. Or maybe she's geting ready to shed. Who knows. But as long as she isnt acting like shes hurt or sick.

My whites will hang out during the day too either chillin in the water or just hangin on the branches. Its not every day. But its not uncommon.


We can never go back to the way it was...

Humidity may be too low.

I mist them 2x a day and there's a little condensation on the glass.
It's 9pm and she's still in there. I'm going to see how she moves around tonight after it's lights out.

I saw her eat a few days back. Next time I feed them, I may seperate her to make sure I know she ate.
The other female joined her in the water tonight too. I'm watching close. I don't know how much they were getting to eat before I bought them last weekend. I've been popping about 12 crickets in the tank every other day.. I fed them yesterday and there's still 2 or 3 crickets wandering about. I just put 3 large kingworms in a bowl.. I figure if her or one of the others are hungry, they'll be gone soon enough.

The large female has been porking back crickets and she's usually the first to nab ANYTHING in the tank.

Later next week, I may pick up a pinky for them each for a little boost.
The one female that's been in the water all day (the blue phase) is the chunkiest of the group.

From what I hear, WTFs are habitually lazy frogs, so don't worry about it. Try not to mess with them very much, either. Frogs don't like to be handled, and it could stress them out. Other than that, I think they should be fine.
